Food Grade Pumps
Below is our portfolio of food grade pumps most commonly used in hygienic industry duties. We supply hygienic pumps designed to cover a wide range of fluids from low viscosity easy-flowing transfer duties such as water and food oils all the way through to heavy duty non-flowing high viscosity duties like chilled butter and paste concentrates. Contact us if you need pump selection assistance.
Circumferential Piston Pumps
Not to be confused with rotary lobe pumps, the circumferential piston (or rotary piston) pump uses special ‘sliding metal’ non-galling alloy rotors to offer strong self-priming capabilities and gentle handling of shear-sensitive fluids and slurries.
Circumferential piston pumps (or rotary piston pumps) are food grade industrial pumps and feature a stainless steel 316 body with rotors constructed from a non-galling “808” stainless alloy aka ‘the metal that slides’. The close-clearance operation of the rotors is critical to the performance of the pump and allows gentle handling of high viscosity, shear-sensitive fluids. We use these pumps for pumping butter & fats, fondants, icing, concentrated pastes, fruit concentrates, wholetail scampi and other fragile or high viscosity materials.LEARN MORE
Drum, Barrel & IBC Pumps
There is no better way to empty a drum than by using a drum pump! Typically supplied as a drum (or IBC) length tube powered by an electric or pneumatic motor but also available in increasingly sophisticated and robust systems to pump non-flowing products such as petroleum jelly or concentrated tomato paste.LEARN MORE
Water Booster Pumps
When your mains water supply has inadequate pressure to service the demands of your building(s), installing a water booster set will give you the pressure and volume of water supply you need.LEARN MORE
Food Grade or Industrial pumps? We’ll help you find what you need.
Some of the pump types on this page are commonly used in hygienic industry transfer duties. Some of these pump technologies are accepted as being ‘food grade’ pumps as they are constructed from food grade FDA compliant contact materials – typically 316 Stainless Steel with food grade O-rings / gaskets / elastomers. Other pump designs can be classed as being fully hygienic and are certified to industry standards for hygiene and cleanliness such as EHEDG, 3A and / or FDA. If you are in any doubt about the suitability of any pump for your particular requirements, please ask us and we can guide you to the food grade pumps that suit your duties.CONTACT US TODAY
